you’ll find the latest news on what I’m doing with the school and reviews of some brilliant books that I think you might enjoy.
It’s your blog as much as mine, so whether you’re a student, a teacher, a member of staff or a parent at the school, I’d love to hear

My first visit

I made my first visit to Captain’s Close School this week to meet with Mrs Hancock and Miss Gackowska and talk about what we might do to encourage an enthusiasm for reading in the school.

I love Lego – it’s my favourite toy – so when I saw the collection of Lego mini-figures in Mrs Hancock’s office, I thought we’d probably get on, and I was right! We had a great meeting and I’m really looking forward to working with the school.

After the meeting, Mrs Hancock took me on a quick tour of the school and I got to meet some of the staff and students and even the school rabbit. I’ve forgotten his or her name - so perhaps someone can remind me in the comments box below this post.

I was thrilled to see that you already have a display board about me.

I was also very impressed - and a little jealous - of your cardboard cave.

I love building things out of cardboard. Here’s a cave I made for one of my daughter’s birthday parties.

It’s not as impressive as yours, but I did make this dragon to go with it! One of the party games involved throwing balls into the dragon's mouth.

I was even more impressed by your Hobbit Home and can understand why Mrs Hancock is so proud of it.

I’ll have a chance to meet you all properly when I visit the school some time after the half-term holiday. So see you then!
